a major impact on the environment. pollution of all sorts began to show up in the air, water, and on land. in turn, the environment began to have an impact on us. nightly newscasts and morning papers are filled with stories about ozone depletion, water and air pollution, and toxic waste in our neighborhoods. while these problems may seem not to affect us personally, we cannot ignore the health hazards that come with living on an interconnected planet. the environment is a crucial factor in the health of each of us. if the environment is not healthy, there is no way we can truly call ourselves healthy. persistent efforts and regulation over the last few decades have greatly reduced environmental pollution. ib: our rivers don't catch on fire anymore. persistent efforts and regulation over the last few decades we don't have big, black plumes in most communities in america. we don't see slicks going down the great lakes. so people believe, because they don't see it, that, somehow, we're in a better state now than we ever were before, and the truth is, that all we've done is cosmetic surgery.

and functional furniture. the walls tend to be just painted flats. you have the visual environment to create a tremendous sense of dramatic isolation and alienation. and that was part of the whole conceit of noir, of using lighting techniques to alter space psychologically. you can't underestimate the german influence in it all. and all the german expatriates who were filling the ranks of the hollywood crafts as well as director and writer. and they brought with them a dramatic and visual tradition that was very different from the more vaudeville or the more showman tradition of american films of the time. (john bailey) fritz lang did a trilogy of early gangster films, of the mabuse trilogy which had tremendous influence, not only in german cinema, but also in this country. even going back before that, "the cabinet of dr. caligari," the sets were built in false perspective. tremendous sense of light and dark contrasts. tilted angles, foregrounding of objects. these became very prominent, i think, in film noir. (abraham polonsky) objects are not things that happen to be in a room. objects are

natural environment. the mekong river traces an 1,100-mile path through or along the border of laos. the river has also been a barrier between laos and its neighbors. now there is a road, where before there was none. in 1994, the friendship bridge gave laos its first land link with the outside world, through thailand to the west. the bridge may symbolize a connected future, but laos in the here and now remains among the poorest countries in the world.

. we've tried this in a couple instances in this class, which is a totally controlled environment here, but yet people have said, in a few guests we've had, a few activities we've had, people have begun to feel an actual tangible change in their sense of self. and if that can happen in this setting, imagine what happens in one where people are believers and are trained and are attached to this ritual. so it's a huge power. well, just a couple more things. i don't want to forget this thought i have about some of the more negative aspects of ritual, but sacramental - another key feature of rituals. and sacramental is not, in this case, the capital of california; we're talking about the sacrament - that's a great one - juan told me that on the break. we're talking about another key point here. it's taking the ordinary and transforming it into the extraordinary. i mean, that's - sacrament, sacrifice; ascending, descending. i love those balances between the two, because in the sacrament, the divine descends as the human sacrifices some sense of their limited sense of self, and ascends. and

a little bit like this. now, it's a little bit warmer than the environment. how quickly does it cool? not very quickly because delta t is very small. if i put this in an oven and turn it red hot, take it outside. [makes sounds] this thing starts cooling like mad, okay? i mean, let's suppose every-- by you hear click, click, click, okay? red hot, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, see? one hot, click, click, make sense? it makes sense doesn't it? very, very--things that very, very hot compared to surrounding will cool out quickly. things that aren't so hot don't cool up so quickly, huh? so that's kinda make sense. if you got a can of beer or something, you wanna cool it down quickly. you put it in a fridge, someone says, "no, no. put it in a freezer, it'll cool faster." you say, "well, honey, if it gets down "to what the fridge is that's good enough. i'll just leave it in a fridge." who's right? put it in a fridge or the freezer, you wanna cool it faster. how many say same-same? if you wait five minutes it's the same. check your

could not believe what was going on in this neighborhood. i think it has to do with our environment. what we smell, what we inhale. we were deer hunting in the back, and we noticed that there was such a strong, strong odor back there. the smell was so strong and so bad. it was awful. i started noticing in my river these sheets of black coming downstream. the color is different, the smell is different, the whole river is different. it's rough, whatever is in it is killing these trees. they have cut this huge channel, and it is like an open sewer line. [mr. bouie] this is where the smell is coming from. [coughs] you can see the steam coming from the stuff, and at times it gets so bad it's like a big cloud, and it gets up in the air and it flows right over the trees where our property is. it is our mission to find out what it is, who's behind it and how to stop it. it causes the throat to be sore, eyes to hurt, nose, and it's harsh to breathe in. the first time that i came here and saw the color of the water, it was like an epiphany. this right here, this private property, if you could
